Happy Juneteenth!

Happy Juneteenth!

Sometimes I wonder what I would have done, had I been born while slavery was still legal.

As much as I like to think I would have taken action against it, I’ll never really know. However, I believe that what we do now to fight the current injustices is a good indicator of what we would have done against slavery. 

Afterall, even though African Americans aren’t technically slaves anymore, they’re more likely to be incarcerated, and did you know prisoners provide free labor for corporations? They’re calling it modern slavery. Don’t believe me? Look up “prison labor”. (Thanks to the Netflix documentary “13th” for opening my eyes to this reality!)

If this is shocking to you too, drop a “✊🏾” in the comments!
